The Ministry of Aviation has denied reports of a sale of the Kotoka International Airport.
It explained that the airport continues to remain a Ghanaian facility and therefore urged Ghanaians to dismiss such rumours.
The sector minister, Joseph Kofi Adda, explained that plans are in place to improve the delivery of service and expand facilities there.

He added that the decisions are being deliberated upon in consultation with stakeholders such as the Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL).
Per a report by the Ghana News Agency, he also indicated that the ministry intends to make Ghana the aviation hub of the West Africa sub-region.
For that reason, he went on, President Akufo-Addo granted executive approval for the engagement of the services of strategic partners.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that President Akufo-Addo has approved the selection of Turkish firm, TAV-Summa Consortium, to help revive Ghana’s aviation sector.
The Turkish firm is coming on board as a strategic partner to the Ghana Airports Company Limited.
The selection ends a yearlong search for such a partner, a move that was opposed by the local union of the company.
